The service has been introduced to offer customers greater flexibility and access to a range of different meal solutions and essentials.

Customers can shop in the same way as they would when ordering from a restaurant via the Uber Eats app.

Once confirmed, the order is picked in-store by Asda colleagues before being collected and delivered by a courier using the Uber Eats app.

With no minimum basket size needed to place an order, customers can shop their favourite products for a convenient, contactless and cash-free delivery.

Simon Gregg, vice president of online grocery at Asda, said: “We’re pleased extend our rapid grocery delivery partnership with Uber Eats to customers in Reading.

“This gives customers near the store more choice in how they shop with us and offers yet another way to quickly and conveniently get their favourite branded and own-brand products delivered to the doorstep.

“Customers can use the Uber Eats app to select from hundreds of items for delivery in the same way they would shop for a takeaway.”
